OK, been busting my but since my last comp and now beginning to concentrate of the new season.
My goal was to bring my thighs, calves, glutes and shoulders up at least 1/4" as much as 1/2".
Chest - 36" (91.4 cm) (no change)
Arms - 12" (30.5 cm) (up 1")
Hips - 34" (86.4 cm) (up 1")
Thighs - 20.5" (52.1 cm) (up .5")
Calves - 13" (33.0 cm) (up .5")
Forearms - 9.75" (24.8 cm) (up .25")
That being said, I am carrying more BF than I do at comp. My last comp I was at 104, but had taken my last measurements when I weighted in at 112, I'm at 116 now and beginning a cut (Height is 5'5" / 1.7 m). So we'll see what I have left after. However, I have a tendency to carry any extra BF in my abs .... not in the areas above. So hoping for good results.
I knew I was making progress when my jeans fit in the waist, but getting them over my thighs is a struggle, and my Long Sleeve Shirts from last winter don't fit over my shoulders/upper back, but chest is fine and waist too baggy. Finding clothing is going to be a chore. I am finding myself in athletic wear most days this winter. Can't wait until summer when I can go back to shorts/skirts and spaghetti straps shirts or tanks!
It's funny when I started, many of the above numbers were that same, but I was coming in at 130lbs and was "soft". Everything shrunk when the BF came off, then started to get hard. And now, they are coming up and hard as hell! I get a lot of "damn girl" when someone grabs my arm or leg now .... even at rest. I've come a long way! Of course, I'm not "done" yet, lol But my point being, it was just putting in the time and being totally dedicated and consistent that got me this far.
Today's training schedule is 20 min steady cardio (brisk walk) on incline tread, Abs. And then off for nail appoint.
Still getting adjusted to new eating plan, but starting to finally get a little more settled.
